The Chamber is launching its assault early
The San Francisco Chamber of Commerce decided this month to release a scorecard ranking the members of the Board of Supervisors on business-related issues. The idea was pretty clear: make the progressives on the board appear "anti jobs" — although some of the selections (naming rights for Candlestick Park?) weren't really jobs issues at all. And the scorecard wasn't about jobs (after all, the biggest employers in San Francisco are public agencies); it was about the downtown agenda.
We typically wait until election time to review how the supes voted over the past two years, but since the Chamber is launching its assault early, we thought we'd add a dose of reality. On page 13, you can find our list of 20 key votes on a broad range of progressive issues and see how the district supervisors did.
There's another guide in this issue, too — our annual look at the San Francisco International Film Festival. And in honor of the festival, we've done something unusual. There are two different versions of the Guardian cover, highlighting two different movies. Go ahead — collect 'em both.
